Preparation

  1. Make the filling: In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Make the dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla, sugar, and milk until combined. Add the pancake mix and stir with a rubber spatula until mostly incorporated.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly until mostly smooth. Roll the dough out to an 8 x 6-inch rectangle.
  3. Spread the filling over the dough. Starting with a long edge, tightly roll the dough into a log. Cut in half crosswise.
  4. Grease 2 12-ounce mugs with nonstick spray. Place 1 cinnamon roll in each mug with the cut side facing up. Spoon 1 teaspoon of water into each mug. Working 1 at a time, microwave the cinnamon rolls on medium power for 1 minute and 45 seconds. Let cool for 1 minute.
  5. Make the icing: In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
  6. Drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls before serving.
  7. Enjoy!
